Outbreaks of drug problems often come to public attention first via media reports. NDEWS conducts monthly searches of published news articles using a flexible list of drug terms and concepts. These charts show the trend in the number of news articles* that mention specific drug terms in print and online news sources in the U.S. The charts will be updated periodically. 
*Articles were identified by a search of the more than 2,400 English-language newspapers and web news sources in the LexisNexis Academic database.
